Ah, now I remember. It was that thread where I read about those
notification messages. Your message reminded me that I was actually
testing with [iemnet/udpclient] which does not seem to ignore those
messages. And indeed, [netsend -u] does _not_ disconnect itself when
sending many packets to Miller's proposed UDP server emulation.
However, many packets are dropped, even on localhost. So, it seems that
the quickly-binding-and-releasing-port business doesn't really make for
a decent UDP server, unfortunately. I was hoping that a C illiterate
person like me would get something going with Pd performing better than
with Python. I guess I have to wait for 
https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/issues/949 or learn C ;-)
